2018 Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship
Expert Picks and Tournament Preview

Puerto Rico Open LogoThe Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship will be the first PGA tournament held in the Dominican Republic. Previously the event was a Web.com tour stop but has been now promoted to the big kids table playing teh same week as the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play tournament.

Most of the field for the Corales Championship will be the rookies on tour that didn't rank high enough to play in this week's WGC and are looking for the 300 FedEx cup points and the two year PGA Tour exemption that comes with winning the tournament.

2018 Corales Club Championship Tournament Preview

The 2018 Corales Puntacana Resort Championship will have a weaker field of players to make fantasy picks from. As mentioned, the top names on tour will be playing the Match Play Championship but because DFS sites can't come up wil a fantasy golf game for match play, DFS players that need their fix will have to settle for this tournament.

With a distance of 7670 yards, it is a long course so a good strategy to focus on are guys with high driving accuracy off the tee. Not many golfers will have played here before so also keep an eye out for who has been hot entering the week and ride their streak of cuts or high finishes.

You will be limited to lower GPP Prize pools this week but nonetheless, I'm sure you can find some good head to head cash games to make you some money this week at our affiliate partner site DraftKings.com.
